Audiologists are most interested in interventions that lead to better speech understanding. However, the evidence for the benefits of music training on speech-in-noise (SIN) performance has been mixed.
Mysteries of the Hearing Brain — What Can Rate Code Tell Us About Cochlear-Implant and Older Listeners?
Samira Anderson looks at how impaired rate discrimination may affect an older person’s ability to understand speech in a cocktail party scenario.
Anderson et al outline how their study results, paired with previous findings, support exploring how infants with HL utilize both TE and TFS for speech discrimination.
Samira writes about how analysis methods can be developed to extract the neural signal with fewer channels and expand our ability to objectively assess real-world hearing ability.
Samira Anderson relates the utility of using an array of evoked potentials to fully understand the nature of a patient’s complaints and remember that it is not possible to definitively conclude that a person has “normal hearing” based on an audiogram alone.
Due to the confusion of terms for various evoked potentials, in this column, Samira Anderson will clarify any confusion provide a brief history and summary of clinical uses of these potentials.
Auditory training may be an efficacious management recommendation for older adults. The success of this training is likely to be enhanced if it employs techniques known to enhance neuroplasticity.
Samira Anderson looks at auditory training and neuroplasticity.
Samira Anderson looks at counseling patients on understanding the mechanisms involved in adjusting to increased loudness.
Hearing problems in older people may not be related to audibility but rather to the decreased temporal processing that accompanies aging.
